Amsterdam pub recommendations

Quite often people ask me pubs that I could recommend, so here they are. Funny enough it's usually local people who ask my opinion. I thought it might be better to write a page such way that recommendations are usable also for people who has limited knowledge where abouts at Amsterdam, such as tourists.

Notation is simple; first description what an average tourist might know being nearby, then name of the pub in which bold means simplified name people tend to use. The last line is street address. The locations are roughly in some sort of geometrical order.
